What Gig's Have You Been To?

Couldn't see a thread dedicated to live music.

I went to see The Specials last night at Rock City,Nottingham.  Good gig small venue (about 2500).  Decent atmosphere.  Was almost a very short concert with Mr Hall threatening to walk off after bottles were thrown.  It seems some people just can't help acting like idiots.  Some well dressed folks about too.  I'm always blown away when I see a women skinheads, a male skinhead so what?  But a woman skinhead that takes guts.

  • Within last week I did not attend the Bamberg Soul Weekender, nor did I see The James Hunter Six, Carlton J Smith or, best of all, the Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio tonight. 

    What a brilliant week that wasn't! :-(

  • 4339069238?profile=RESIZE_930xmy last gig before lock down was Mother Earth's comeback tour in Leeds. I was looking forward to a return visit to see King Khan & The Shrines, but unfortunately thats cancelled now. 4339087655?profile=RESIZE_930x

  • 4325296968?profile=RESIZE_930xAt the Stone Foundation online gig right now.... and while I hope this is not the future, I suppose it's better than nothing at all.

    • I'm on the SF mailing list but never check my inbox. In consequence I'm watching the gig now. I'm not wearing my SF20 band shirt because I'm not as cool as your lass!


    • I imagined it a bit different, tbh. Quite amateurish in the end; but anyway, nice distraction. Tonight they should have been in Cologne,  in fact. :-(

  • 4276210099?profile=RESIZE_930xNo gigs recently or in the near future; so here's one from 36 years ago! First time I saw Mr Weller on stage, not yet 15 for another 4 weeks.

    • Nice one Kai, My first time was a few years earlier. It was this gig that made me hang up my leather jacket and bondage trousers and get a Jam Suit complete with Jam Shoes.4277663530?profile=RESIZE_710x

    • Yeah, I just about missed the Jam; got into Mod at 14 just in time for the SNAP! compilation and Hewitts 'Beat Concerto' book.

      At the 100 Club, of all places; nice one!

  • 4043477282?profile=RESIZE_930xVelvet Attack from Dortmund @ the Monkey Cave 60s Club last night; solid old school psych- garage.

    •  Velvet Attack are great. I'd love to see them live.
